The Swamp Kings

The Swamp Kings live and play by one motto: Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler! While bringing New Orleans Funk and Cajun Boogie up the Mississippi River to their home of Minnesota, the band has captured a unique fan base playing clubs, festivals and events since 2006. The Swamp Kings style is rhythmic, energetic and raw–bleeding Cajun, Funk, Blues and Zydeco. Soulful vocals, swampy guitar, spicy accordion and just the right amount of heat from the rhythm section make the perfect ingredients for good times. Bring the spice to your venue by having The Swamp Kings on your entertainment menu!
